Support Creative Research Activities

ASAN Foundation provides an academic research support project for competent researchers in order to promote the academic and social development of Korea.

For the first ten years after the establishment, the Foundation focused on supporting natural sciences, but expanded its scope to humanities and social sciences for twenty years from the late 1980s.

From 2009, the Foundation extended its support to the research activities of new and leading scholars, creative interdisciplinary research, and previously unexplored academic fields. In 2015, the Foundation embarked on specific projects aimed at improving its social influence, presenting realistic and practical alternatives, and producing beneficial ripple effects.

The scholars´ research results are published in the ASAN Foundation Research Series. The reports are distributed to universities, public libraries, and research institutes.
